Practice Groups

Minis

The Minis group is for swimmers who are new to competitive swimming.  They must be able swim an entire lap of the pool without assistance.  The focus for this group is to introduce all four competitive strokes.  By the end of the season, we hope that everyone in this group is able dive off the block and swim strokes legally.

Gold

The swimmers in this group have experience in competitive swimming, but cannot do all 4 strokes legally including turns and starts.  This group will focus on stroke, turns, starts and overall race and training ability.  Goal of this group is to master all four strokes, turns and racing starts.  It is recommended that this group attend 3 out of the 5 practice times offered.

Blue

Swimmers who demonstrate a higher level of skill and have a significant amount of competitive experience, will be placed in the blue group.  This group has mastered all four strokes, competitive starts and turns, and can endure conditioning and dry land. Swimmers will be introduced to a greater range of races and strategies.  The ultimate goal of this group is qualification for SAL Champs and/or Middle Atlantic Junior Olympics.  It is recommended that this group attend 4 out of the 6 practices offered per week.

 Group Movement

After a four week ‘getting to know you’ period, Coaches will determine if swimmers are appropriately placed.  Coaches will move swimmers accordingly in order to have the most efficient and effective practices for all swimmers.
